Tour of Greater Kyalami for Retail Africa and Bokomoso:
Over the past two years one of GEKCO’s key roles has been monitoring developers to ensure that they are meeting their environmental obligations. In order to take a more constructive and proactive role, GEKCO recently hosted Retail Africa and Bokomoso on a tour of greater Kyalami. Retail Africa and Bokomoso have bought 17 hectares on the south-western corner of Main Rd (P70) and the R55 (opposite Beaulieu Prep) on which they are proposing developing a shopping mall. Recognising strong opposition among local residents to yet another shopping mall in an area whose retail needs are already over-catered for, GEKCO’s objective was to introduce them to the greater Kyalami area, its diversity and strengths, highlighting the equine industry and the equestrian lifestyle.
